In the thesis, judged good enough to award the author both a master’s degree and a law degree, he opposed the Supreme Court ruling legalizing use of contraception by unmarried couples, said working women are detrimental to the family and that the government should make policy that favors married couples over “cohabitators, homosexuals or fornicators.”
He also advocated in the paper making it more difficult to divorce, imposing character education in public schools to teach Judeo-Christian values, and repealing federal tax credits for child care expenses because they encourage women to work. Oh, and the graduate income tax, in place since 1916, this scholar wrote is “socialist.”
Now, I wrote a bunch of stuff when I was in college that might not stand up today, but I was 22. The man I have quoted, was 34 years old with experience in the military and in the business world.
Today, he is the governor-elect of Virginia, a state (actually a commonwealth) that was the capital of the Confederacy, closed its public schools rather than integrate, made black/white marriages illegal and where I learned the N word and what the Stars and Bars were when I lived there as a child.
The progressive area of Virginia, home to many federal workers and contractors, is choked by traffic due to Republican refusal to do anything about transportation. The rest of the state is populated by country-club rednecks, militarists and ignoramuses.
After 12 years of moderate Democrats holding the governorship, the party lost today because it nominated a conservative who ran away from President Obama, holds generally Republican views, ran an unbelievably incompetent campaign and gave the liberals and blacks who gave Virginia to Obama last year absolutely nothing to vote for.
